COUNTDOWN to…24 HOUR COMIC DAY, FALLCON, FALSE WITNESS #2 and LAW IN POLITICS–day 4 (of 4)

   24 HOUR COMIC DAY is tomorrowSaturday October 3rd (to Sunday October 4th).  Locally(MPLS/STPL, MN) the event will be held at the MN CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS and begins at 10 AM.  All the details are HERE, and we’ll also be blogging throughout the day THERE as well.

FALSE WITNESS #2 -- NOW AVAILABLE!!!

FALSE WITNESS #2 -- NOW AVAILABLE!!!

 

   ALSO:  FALSE WITNESS #2 is now for sale online and at some local comic retailers (Source, Big Brain). It will also be available at FALLCON (Oct 10th and 11th)!.  It is written and pencilled by BILL PRENDERGAST, and features inks/finishes/etc by myself, LUPI MCGINTY, DANIEL J OLSON, JAMES POWELL, and RYAN DOW.  

     Speaking of that project, the October/November issue of LAW IN POLITICS (MINNESOTA) is now out and features an illustration of MN’s own highly-flammable Rep. Michele Bachmann I drew in FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY #1 cropped and colored(again by me) in their “TURKEYS OF THE YEAR” feature, in a section about Ms. Bachmann’s best quotes over the last year.  This issue of LAW AND POLITICS also kicks off the “TURKEYS…” features with a nice illustration by co-Conspirator KEN AVIDOR.  I don’t know if I have the right to post either of the images from the magazine here, so instead I’ll compromise with these:  First up a drawing Ken did of me in the battle of my life (from his LUTEFISK SUSHI ‘C’ contribution)…

MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE–the SUPER FANTASTICA short–pg 2(of4), Also: ‘Continuity Guy’ pg2, and a great FALSE WITNESS review

pg 2

pg 2

        To Be Continued….

***Yep, take it from a Minnesotan, winter and snow suck.

       Oh, and MANLY TALES just got it’s first pull-quote–direct from The Comics Journal board:

       “Fleming Hazmat: Worlds Most Dangerous Spaceman”

        I like it!

*** The second page of the CONTINUITY GUY story I wrote and BUD BURGY is drawing is now up at Bud’s site: www.bugburgy.wordpress.com and it looks great. Man I love watching this thing come to life. Strong work, Bud.

***FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY comic I’m working on has been getting some reviews on the ol’ internet, most of which have been positive, but can’t really see beyond “LOOK! A COMIC! ABOUT MICHELE BACHMANN! THATS CRAZY COOL!”  Well  yesterday POLITICS IN MINNESOTA did a review that really “gets it” (http://tinyurl.com/politicsmn-BachmannComic). They get that this Bachmann biography is a comic because Bachmann is a comic come to life, and the bizarre way she sees the world seems to work best by the combination of her words and images. And, most saddening, this biography is a comic because the actual media(TV, papers) haven’t been doing their jobs for years, and its up to bloggers and self-publishers to do the work for them.  So…thanks POLITICS IN  MINNESOTA!    Also, if you want to read some of the other reviews as well as Bill and Lupi’s 4 page preview they did for the CITY PAGES go to: http://www.immelman.us/news/bachmann-false-witness-released/ .   AAAANNNNDDDD you can always order a copy of FALSE WITNESS for yourself by going to www.biasedliberalmedia.com

     Thats all for today. Back tomorrow with page 3 and the “origin” of this story–REVEALED!

    Anyway… I wanted to give a couple big shout outs today:

1) http://www.stwallskull.com/blog/?cat=144  My buddy Steve Stwalley does a big blog-round-up blog about comics on his STWALLSKULL.COM site and he gave me, Fleming, and staplegenius.com some featured love yesterday. Thanks Steve, and welcome to everyone who has come and checked the site out. Stick around I have plenty of MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE in store for you.

2) http://www.citypages.com/2009-05-27/news/a-michele-bachmann-comic-misadventure/  The comic FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY that I and some of my friends have been working on for author/penciller Bill Prendergast has an exclusive sneak preview in the new City Pages. Its content made specifically for the City Pages that is written and pencilled by Bill and inked by Lupi. You can learn more about the FALSE WITNESS comic  at www.biasedliberalmedia.com (where there’s a page displayed from the forth-coming book that I inked), and see more work by Lupi at her blog  http://lupiloops.wordpress.com/ .
